Personal statement

Izni Zahidi is a lecturer in the Department of Civil Engineering at Monash University Malaysia. She is undertaking research on modelling the relationship between key soil properties and the oil palm disease trails and incidences. Her primary research is in applying hydroinformatics using Geographic Information System (GIS) and modelling to manage water resources. Coming from the industrial background, her aim is to bridge the gap between research and industry through flood and water quality prediction and assessment as well as decision-making processes.

Research Projects

Title: Development of GIS geodatabase for modelling relationship between soil properties and Ganoderma disease incidence in oil palm plantation

C:\Users\imoh0003\Downloads\PHOTO-2018-10-16-16-03-11.jpg

Currently the study on relationship of soil properties with Ganoderma disease incidence has been focusing on macro nutrient and physical of soils. There is a need to study relationship of Ganoderma disease incidence with macro and micro nutrients of soils to better understand the epidemiology and soil effects on the disease. This project provides better understanding on the relationship between the key soil properties and the oil palm disease trails and incidences. The novelty of this research includes the monitoring procedure and analysis towards developing appropriate relationship between the soil properties and Ganoderma disease in an oil palm plantation using GIS. The GIS geodatabase is expected to contribute as preliminary tools towards aiding planters with suitable planting methods and soil treatments in effort to reduce potential incidence of the Ganoderma disease.
